Annemie Koenen

Artist and international tutor.

My medium is felt, a natural special textile made from wool of the sheep with all its many good characteristics.
Felting is a primal craft and can be made with simple means.
The nomads in Asia live pure in and with felt close to Mother Earth.
I’m being inspired by nature and cultures from distant lands and like to work with recycling materials.
My artistry finds its form in many dormant ideas that awake at a certain moment or that come my way, whereby I like to be led by the circumstances, which are a limitation and a challenge.
My passion is free embroidery on felt, mainly intuitive.

When I work in commission my goal is to get the image of my client as clear as possible, to create the work from that, in dialogue, fitting in its environment.
